the midwest to go down to texas which is the one part of the united states that already has more oil than it can consume. there are some in the environmental movement who know if the pipeline is built and the carbon atoms on the petroleum under the ground of canada will not be burned and mixed into oxygen atoms and sent into our atmosphere. i think the of their opening statements have made it clear that at some point can canada will find a way to exploit this whether it is through the united states or the port of vancouver to the world markets. however, we shouldn't think that is automatic or easy or that keystone is going to go away next week. there are environmentalists in canada. i have met them and they are no more excited about the building of the east and west pipeline through canada than our environmentalists for the pipeline. energy really comes down to two separate issues or somewhat separate issues, and that is how we generate the electricity and how we move our vehicles? this is sometimes a lump together in one issue as we have a national security crisis hell are we go
